The 2016 SoCal Hearing Conference was hosted by the Center for Hearing Research and the School of Social Sciences at the University of California at Irvine on Saturday, September 3, 2016.
This informal one-day conference is intended to enhance communication among Southern California scientists interested in hearing and vocal communication. All levels of researchers are welcome, students through PI’s, but we particularly encourage presentations from senior students and post-docs. The event will consist of talks, no more than one from each lab, as well as posters from anyone who would like to offer one. The talks will be 20 minutes in length with an additional 5 minutes for questions. We hope that each speaker will briefly introduce the overall scope of his or her lab followed by a brief presentation of his or her own research. If it happens that we receive more volunteers for talks than we can accommodate, we will be back in touch with you to try to trim things down to one or two talks per institution. The posters can be new, but repeats from recent ARO or other meetings also are welcome. Morning munchies, Lunch, coffee and snacks will be provided throughout the day. An optional dinner at a local restaurant, the cost of which will be covered by each diner, will also be arranged. Aside from the $10 cost of parking and the cost of the optional dinner, there will be no fee. We do, however, request that you register through the website below so that we know how many participants to expect. Further details and maps will be sent to all registrants in advance of the meeting.
